not be at the core of the debate. the health-care programs are a significant concern. in fact, one of the interesting things is that if we had a health-care system that was as efficient as some of the european health-care systems, we would have no deficit. so that in fact it's the inefficiency of our health-care system that is a major cause of our deficits. so my mind our focus should be -- >> to make it more efficient. >> and the health-care reform passed by the congress did it do that. >> it was a move in the right direction. >> didn't go far enough. >> it didn't go far enough. and some of the things are going to take awhile. look there was a lot of pushback from the say the pharmaceutical industry. one of the things is that in the bill that was passed that provided for the drug benefit there was a provision that gave the drug companies huge amounts of money. that was cut back just a little bit. health insurance companies still get excess profits. so we have a lot of that in this part of the health-care system that we could take out. the problem is that the kinds can of proposals that say ryan put

, the whole healthcare debate was a pretty good proxy for the larger debate. romney had his five points against the president. he talked about these panels which there's a panel called death panels. he talked about the $716 billion cut. the president's response was he kind of backed into his response figuring he would explain it and everybody would be smart enough to see the absurdity of mitt romney but he was not clear and on point. particularly on this voucher question, and what romney would propose with paul ryan to do to medicare. i mean, this is where i heard from a couple republicans well now we're on to medicare and this is where the president will just clobber him because it's an issue that's very sensitive and it's one in which mitt romney basically if we get back to this question in secrecy, romney's answer to how are you going to do this, how are you going to cap the ryan of healthcare inflation without hurting quality he basically says well the free market will figure that out which is to say there's not many details about it. the president didn't press him to the mat on tha

for us to deal with medicare in particular is to lower health-care costs. when it comes to social security, as i said, you don't need a major structural change in order to make sure that social security is there for the future. >> follow-up on this. first, governor romney, in a two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> our seniors depend on these programs, and i know anytime we talk about entitlements, people become concerned that something is going back and that's going to change the life of the worst. the answer is, neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees either to social security or medicare. so if you're 60 or around 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. for younger people, we need to talk about changes that are going to be occurring. i just thought about one. i was wrong when i said the president is proposing for any changes for current retirees. he is on medicare, not on social security. on medicare, for current $716ees, he's cutting million from the program did he says it's by not overpaying hosp

[laughter] >> i love it so far. what do you make with the obsession in america with tests? >> well, we don't use tests because we do not believe in them. the evaluation assessment is different. is based on a different ground. -- it is based on a different ground. what we want to do is make sure the child has the support services and the teaching is importance. in the semi, -- in the same way, the school leaders support the teachers'. that is very important. >> i gather very early on the kids are being exposed to music and the arts and religion

, put their kids in school, have food on the table, healthcare. the real war on women is the bad economy. >> he is terrible on that. he doesn't support the lily ledbetter act, which is necessary to get women equal pay. >> amazing, again. 2012, we're still talking about equal pay for develwomen. >> right, right. if women had equal pay for equal work, we would have $200 billion more in the economy, exactly where we needed with buying power. >> [indiscernible]. >> absolutely. he's not supporting equal pay even. >> yeah. >> so i'm guessing you're not voting for him? [laughter] >> is that a fair assumption. i'm old. >> why? there are people that will tell you, look, mitt romney is not nearly as conservative at his core as a lot of people nominated by the republicans before. >> i know. >> a lot of the stuff he says -- you actually view him to be not as conservattve as reagan, bush junior.. >> nixon, ll sorts of things could not get nominated now. first bush, who supporttd -- >> he would be opposed because of his support. >> are you for obama? do you think the president has done an adequate jo

really distracting and really unclear, in fact, untrue statements about healthcare where he said i am for coverage for preexisting conditions, his people later on said he wasn't and he said, in fact, before that he never was really for covering preexisting conditions unless, you know, it is paid for, ahead of time during, you know, continuing coverage, and a couple of times in the last week he said things like well if you get sick we won't let you die in your apartment and get you to er and yet came on last night talking about a national health plan he had which he really doesn't have. i thought he got away with a lot of things showing sympathy for social security recipients when in the tape recently exposed it was clear he had no sympathy for people he sees as parasites so i just thought the president, he didn't use his synapse and bring out things that weren't brought up by someone else and didn't really clarify what the difference was between what romney was saying last night and what he said in the very recent past. >> rose: so how do you explain the fact that the president did no

bridge in many cases they do not have access to basic healthcare. we lose sight of that every time to talk about this. i think it is important the acknowledge this is larger than just an american problem. >> i want to add something to what you just talked about, specifically when it comes to the conduct of soldiers when they come home. there is a percentage of soldiers who engage in various activities that the military levels as misconduct, such as alcohol related offenses, drinking, substance abuse, drug- related offenses. those are misconduct in the military. so the process of helping those who come home and need help and appropriate care should not be confused with diminishing or degrading the system of accountability within the military. the military heavily depends on what is commonly referred to as the good order and discipline of the military. all of us in my field where we work, i acknowledge -- where i work, we of knowledge that. someone who is not able to receive the proper inappropriate treatment or individually tailored treatment they need, they resort to things like se
